    I was just thinking this. I had an internal u/s for infert diagnosis at a public hospital and they couldn't even tell me if it was corpus or dermoid cysts I had

    I too have a spare room that I would be willing for someone travelling to Sydney for IVF to crash in. I'm on my 3rd cycle as a donor and wish I could do more. A room, nice meals and some screaming kids (obviously to help the process along) are all yours if you do travel. Good luck- as a donor I have no idea about costs.

    Default Liverpool IVF Feedback

    Hi there,

    Has anyone cycled with Liverpool IVF (low cost) I am considering giving this ago, I understand there is no GA for EPU only sedation and pain relief.

    We have an appt 23/6 travelling from Newcastle - any feedback good or bag will be appreciated.

    xx

    There isn't even sedation for Liverpool. They give you a panadeine and gas. Westmead is low cost and does sedation.

    There is a Liverpool/Springwood thread in the IVF section. Some say it's very painful, others say it isn't too bad. I'm personally not going to be using Liverpool for this reason! Westmead has an option where you can go non-safety net and pay $900 a cycle upfront.
